Weds. 20th-October, (1st week)- Introductory Talk

The talk will be held at Somerville College (Woodstock Road, OX2 6HD). We will meet at the front entrance of Somerville College on Woodstock Road at 7.50pm- I will be there to greet you in a helmet so I shouldn't be hard to miss! Unfortunately, we won't be able to drink or eat during the talk, but we will probably decide on a pub to get drinks at after for anyone who wants to get to know each other and share a drink afterwards. The talk will run you through what exactly happens on a weekend caving trip and what you need to bring/ what we provide, as well as other stuff the club gets up to when we are not in a cave. It should be a great time to meet like-minded people who are just getting into caving, and it would be lovely to see your faces there!  
Hope to see a lot of you at this week's introductory talk and if you have any question feel free to give me a message on here (chair@oucc.org.uk) or Facebook. I am always happy to help and love a good caving question!
